From what I understand a big reason why selling is not allowed on the forums is order not to take business from this advertiser

I am sure that if you wait more than 6 minutes before bumping your post, somebody in-the-know might chime in.

Give it a few hours and stop shouting.

I hope this is a permitted question.

I've been getting quotes pretty low for my Chase UR points. The best I was offered was 1.36 and I was trying to sell a lot so it wasn't due to small volume.

Has their value plummetted since there's a glut from everyone who got a new Sapphire Preferred card?

Perhaps I'm just not going to the right buyers.

Am I allowed to ask you guys to PM me with trusted buyers who would pay 1.5 or so?

Small volume would be worth more, since your limited to one transfer per calendar year.

What is the value of WF points (go far rewards) they can be redeemed for 1.5 on flights and are transferable so I'm wondering if there are any data points. Also boa Merrill lynch points are redeemable for 2 cents pp on flights up to $500. Any DPs on those? Thx

Current rate is 1.2 for WF. Many promos ran out on 12/31. After a few months it will be going back up to 1.3
